Hi crafty people, how are you all today? I feel like my SAL posts always include a little pandemic update from our corner of the world…. so we are still in lockdown, until the end of February I think at this stage. The numbers are starting to come down in Scotland and the vaccination programme is going really well. As rubbish as lockdown is, I think it’s amazing that we have a selection of vaccines and that at least here in Scotland 99% of the care home residents have been vaccinated and 92% of people over the age of 80 in the community (my Mum being one of them!). They have started on the 70s, 65 + are next and lots of care home and NHS staff too. There is much to be grateful for not least the clever scientists and amazing staff who are rolling out the vaccination programme. Spring is round the corner and I feel hopeful of better times ahead. The other ray of sunshine this week was the rugby yesterday when Scotland won the Calcutta Cup for the first 1st time at Twickenham since 1983! I hope you have been finding some rays of sunshine despite everything that’s happening in the world
It’s been another productive stitching time for me. Three weeks ago I was here….
Today I am here….
It’s a snowy day which is perfect stitching weather (although my husband thinks it’s golfing weather and he is off for a game!) so I’m looking forward to getting some more done and cheering on Ireland in the rugby!
This SAL is organised by the lovely Avis. who keeps us all on track (it’s always a surprise to me when the email comes in and I think it cannot be 3 weeks already!!) I just wanted to say a big thank you to Avis and all my fellow stitchers who really keep me motivated to stitch regularly. I’m looking forward to catching up with all the other blogs in this SAL group. Please give them a visit too, I’ve linked them here so you can easily find them.
